    A very average slightly fruity and a little cardboardy Caperdonich.

  2. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    The nose was quite closed without water and rather unremarkable. Addition of water released some faint fruity tones (apple and peach) alongside bread dough and an aspect that i can only describe as reminiscent of new, unused cardboard. Also quite restricted on the palate without water, and unfortunately the addition of a few drops didn`t make a massive difference in terms of releasing additional complexity. Short and light finish. I`m finding it hard to "place" this one. It is certainly different from my usual choices, but I can`t decide whether that is a good thing or not.
